Wikipedia's index systems
Category system
Wikipedia's collection of category pages is a classified index system. It is aut
omatically generated from category tags at the bottoms of articles and most othe
r pages. Nearly all of the articles available so far on the website can be found
through these subject indexes.
If you are simply looking to browse articles by topic, there are three top-level
pages to choose from:
Category:Main topic classifications probably what you are looking for: Arts,
History, Technology, etc.
Category:Fundamental categories organizes articles into 'abstract' ontologic
al categories in a way that every article can reasonably be expected to be class
ified within it; and
Portal:Contents/Categories a hand-crafted list of first- and second-level to
pic categories.
For biographies, see Category:People categories by parameter.
Category:Contents is technically at the top of the category hierarchy, but conta
ins many categories useful to editors but not readers. Special:Categories lists
every category alphabetically.
Alphabetical lists of articles

Special:Allpages lists all of the current pages in Wikipedia.
